There are two trucks and a chipper and four men out front ready to take a dead tree down.
It is sad, as up to four years ago it was healthy and blooming and shady. Now, when it is windy, I scurry a bit to get past it, lest a dead branch falls and gets me.
We are always sorry to see a tree go down: some folks replace them, some don’t. The whole experience makes you savor any shade you have in your summer day.
By the way, yes, I have hugged a tree today:did you?
